I hate to throw a spanner in the works but they are called Go Engines .. There is another company in Taiwan called Go Tech ... Its neither here or there just wanted to inform..

Ok 5 Port torque
7 Port Top
3 Port Zippy

I love all of them but right now the new 3 port has my attention big time .. its hot !

You guys are confusing me with the 3 port! I would much rather spend 115 over 210! So does the turbo 5-port not come with two plugs and is it true turbo plugs last longer but are harder to tune? Can I get some input on the 3-port??? I am ordering the engine tonight! HELP!

You cant get the race 3 port yet so go with the 5 or 7.

when they are talking about the 3 port, they are talking about the 3 port race, which hasnt come out yet, not the 3 port sport. go ahead and get the 5 port or the 7 port. i cant offer any advice on either as i havent run them yet.

Turbo plugs seem to last longer and are not any harder to tune then standards, plus with the GO engines you usually see a big power increase and a runt ime increase of 30-45 seconds per tank

I'm new to the Go engines but so far I've been very impressed with my new
5p....so far it's been the easiest break in I've ever experienced. I've got 14 tanks thru it now...will finish the gallon on it this weekend.


Seems to have more power than you'll ever need....I like that.

GO Tech is it's own entity, not related to The company thats Makes the engine. GO Engines are the motors from taiwan, they are GO engines CO.,LTD. not GO Tech

I thought you were a radical man? Let me know how you think it stacks up against the 621t. I have an opinion, but I want to see what you say. Are you going to Atlanta?

I was running for them....gotta have motors to run first. I don't think I'll be disappointed.


I will have a firm opinion after ATL....yes I'll be there.
